“There is a movement on to normalize pedophilia, and I guarantee you your reaction to that is probably much the same as your reaction when you first heard about gay marriage" -Rush Limbaugh, Presidential Medal of Freedom honoree tonight at SOTU
"The issue has always been denying them a status that they can't have, by definition. By definition - solely, by definition - same-sex people cannot be married." - Rush Limbaugh, Presidential Medal of Freedom honoree tonight at SOTU
“I pointed out the other day, well, then should we maybe stop flouting and flaunting gay marriage, because gay marriage is really disapproved in Islam,” -Limbaugh, blaming it on The Muslims
This is the most offensive trash ever written. This type of thinking acts as if trans people are not human and that the only consideration should be the journey of hateful flawed straight white men. This is the very definition of white straight supremacy. The Bernie left.
Be clear. The Bernie left is prepping you for fascism. The Bernie left wants you to hold up the white straight working class on a pedestal. The Bernie left wants you to disregard POC, LGBTQ, disabled, immigrant, indigenous, women as “distractions” to the goal of the revolution.
This is not new. Bernie Sanders ideology has been consistent for 50 years.
Class is the only struggle that matters.
All other Identities are distractions from the class struggle.
Doubling down on Joe Rogan is the most in your face push in his ideology yet.
1964 Senator Ted Kennedy introduces the very first queer positive amendment in the US congress to provide asylum for Cuban homosexuals under persecution by death from Fidel Castro. This was known. Sanders had to have known about his hero Fidel.
Miss me with the Bernie gay hero mythology. It won’t stand this cycle. #vettingBernie
He praised gay killer Fidel Castro. And has never retracted that praise.
.@tulsigabbard apologists, defenders, and kindred Kumbaya drummers with the Putin asset:
When will you let us old queers know why it's ok that you defend a woman who helped erased our collective queer dream of a Hawaii Civil Union? Don't you know we lived for that dream?
Kamala Harris co-sponsored a bill in CA Legislature to eliminate the “gay/trans panic” defense in cases of murder or violent crime against LGBT people.
Gov. Brown signed the bill in 2014, making CA, along with Illinois, one of 2 states in the country to ban the plea.
Kamala Harris hosted a national conference focused on the so-called gay or transgender panic defense, which is often used as a "heat of passion" defense to argue manslaughter rather than a murder conviction, but is sometimes used as an excuse to justify other crimes.
According to Harris, the conference resulted in gender harassment educational materials that are now distributed to prosecutors throughout the nation and provided some support for the Gwen Araujo Justice for Victims Act.
People blaming Senator Harris for Joe Biden’s lifelong pattern of self sabotage don’t know Joe Biden. Google his 88 and 08 runs. It’s a pattern. He kills his own chances every time. He doesn’t need any help.
Why on earth did he spontaneously bring up vile segregationists who are long forgotten and who millennials never even heard of?
What possible good could come of ripping open painful race wounds and pouring in salt in 2019?
This is the central question on Biden.
Why would Joe Biden make a video supposedly claiming he would stop touching girls and woman without consent and the VERY NEXT DAY JOKE ABOUT CONSENT?
"Today, I want to talk about the work we have left to do to protect one group of people whose human rights are still denied in too many parts of the world today. In many ways, they are an invisible minority." @HillaryClinton at the UN 2011
"They are arrested, beaten, terrorized, even executed. Many are treated with contempt and violence by their fellow citizens while authorities empowered to protect them look the other way or, too often, even join in the abuse." @HillaryClinton at the UN 2011
"They are denied opportunities to work and learn, driven from their homes and countries, and forced to suppress or deny who they are to protect themselves from harm." @HillaryClinton at the UN 2011
2014 Elizabeth Warren, campaign event,
"I talked about building a future for all our kids. A man in his 60s came over to me. He was thin, with the leathery skin of someone who had worked outside for many years. He wore a frayed Vietnam vet's cap. He didn't smile, his voice..."
"...was flat. I looked for clues--maybe a little hostile? I wasn't sure."
"Yeah, you talk about building a future," he said. "But what about transgender?"
"Now he looked full-on angry.
Wow. That seemed to fall out of the sky. I felt the instinctive need to crouch." E.Warren
"I said just as flatly: "We build a future for all our children. And that means transgender children. ALL our children-no exceptions."
He held my gaze for a moment and then said: "Damn right."
He went on to explain that he had a grown son who was transgender"
🌈Big Gay Thread of #LGBT records and history threads 🔥
Gay Liberation Photos
Pulse and HRC
"I heard the doors slam, I heard the shots, I smelled the cordite, He whisked by, everybody disappeared. I walked down the line of supervisors' offices. I walked into one and found 🌈Harvey Milk -- put my finger in a bullet hole trying to get a pulse.” -Dianne Feinstein
"I opened (Milk's) door. I found Harvey on his stomach. I tried to get a pulse and put my finger through a bullet hole. He was clearly dead.
I remember it, actually, as if it was yesterday. And it was one of the hardest moments, if not the hardest moment, of my life," Feinstein
🌈 Thread on the #LGBT record of Cory Booker
2012:Mayor Booker "Dear God: We should not be putting civil rights issues to a popular vote subject to the sentiments or passions of the day, No minority should have their civil rights subject to the majority"
Booker is so correct on this take. Amendment 1 and Prop 8 were extremely painful for #LGBT people. We woke up the next day looked around and forever wondered who voted for us, who against. The majority should never never vote on minority rights.
Booker goes on to talk about #LGBT Americans being second class citizens. "Its ridiculous and offensive we are even having this debate, it should have been done years ago." 2012
